Why the need to name call

1) She clearly won that fight. And of course that doesn't even include the overwhelming Kylo Ren's mind manipulation techniques and reading his mind instead on first try. There is no explaining around this one. This is clearly chalked up to Mary Sue gifts
2) Her being able to climb into the Millennium Falcon and immediately be able to fly it in a way that surprises Han falls right into Mary Sue
3) Yes...Rey is wiser than Luke freaking Skywalker...that is as Mary Sueish as it gets.

"And 100000% bullshit on if she was a dude this would still be happening. Nobody said a fucking word about Luke Skywalker, a fucking farmer, being the greatest Jedi in the galaxy."

Luke has story build up. In a New Hope, he has ONE major moment. That is blowing up the Death Star. The entire movie up to this point is explaining the force and how Luke is strong in it. It comes to fruition at the end. Up to that point there really isn't anything that is "omg how did he do that," like Rey is

In Empire Luke loses in embarrassing fashion to Vader, gets mauled by a Wampa and fails like 3 tests from Yoda (initial patience meeting, vs Vader in the cave, lifting x-wing), and is shown training hard to gain the powers he had

In Return, is the first one where he shows some Gary Stu features, but at that point they have explained how he has become a Jedi...with you know...character development.

Rey is just gifted with power. There is no explanation for why she is a good pilot. There is no explanation for why she is a Jedi class lightsaber duelist. She is just given what she needs in the moment for story telling purposes...that is called being a Mary Sue.

I really don't think there is an argument here.


1. She clearly didn't. Good lord. Use your god damned eyes. Also, he did read her mind, but she's clearly force capable, which he wasn't expecting.
2. Just because she can FLY A SPACESHIP doesn't imply she's a mary sue.
3. Being hopeful does not = being wiser. My god

So you're saying being able to use a lightsaber decently is more mary sue than Luke, a farmer, being able to expertly pilot an advanced spaceship and shoot through a tiny window AND escape before it blows up?

Rey literally fails every test Luke puts her through. And really never has the BREAKTHROUGH moment that Luke got.

Just fucking admit you hate women. It's ok.

The question is why not. He is literally committing mutiny to keep you from enacting your plan. At that point you say, "Look, I didn't tell you but..." You don't continue to let him ruin your plans just because. There is NOTHING to gain from keeping it secret.

The 2nd part is just utter rubbish.

Luke didn't match his character that we knew at all. Luke literally saw good in Darth Vader, a man who had murdered uncountable innocents. Yet he is going to try and kill his nephew because of a vision when he was his master and knew he hadn't committed any crime? Puh-lease. It is completely made up plot nonsense that came out of no where. Horrendous writing.

Don't even get me started on one of the most anti-climactic villains ever in how he dealt with Snoke.

Part of writing for an established franchise is you don't get to start fresh with characters. You have to go off of the characters established personalities. In Last Jedi he just made it up as he went.

The movie had amazing visuals, and Rey/Kylo was indeed a lot of fun. But the story was absolutely horrendous on so many levels.


Ahh yes, the guy who is willing to commit mutiny against you! OK NOW I'll tell you the plan! You seem level headed! Fuck no. I'd lock his ass up.

They literally told us he had a MOMENT of weakness, and remembered having faith in his father, but that moment was all it took. Completely plausible character development over the course of 20-30 years. You do realize people grow up, right?

Ahh yes, get mad about Snoke. That's original.

Again, the movie takes place DECADES after the original. EVERYONE should have a slightly different personality.

Yeh nah, just try'n to keep it light cuz you're on your rags like a little bitch.

Wasn't being serious posting that, but Hamill really does hate the movie, thinks the writing is below the SW standard (I turned TLJ off halfway so don't really have a dog in the race). So you're also saying that Luke Skywalker is stupider/has a less valuable opinion than your own. Start watching here: https://youtu.be/i0biqMZrxJ0?t=98

Honestly, I mean this with my whole heart, go fuck yourself.

Also, Mark Hamill is hardly a judge of the quality of writing, and Star Wars has hardly ever been a beacon of good writing.

Hamill is probably rightfully annoyed that JJ used him for a 10 second shot, and then he gets killed off. He's said multiple times he thinks Luke should have reunited with Han and Leia. Well, Rian gave him a perfect fucking reunion with Leia. And Han is dead.

Ya’ll are a little too fired up here and debating the story is pointless. Every movie has a little bit of bad writing, some more than others, but usually badly written flicks are tossed aside and forgotten about, like Solo for instance. Yet The Last Jedi, along with Captain Marvel and Ghostbusters, just really seems to offend certain people at the core and I just don’t believe that all comes from anywhere good. Once again, disliking these movies is fine. Saying they ruin Hollywood is different, which nobody here does.

To the other point, despite having their lives ruined by these films, the incels are just gonna keep coming back. That’s why it doesn’t really matter. Really, their reaction hurt the franchise more than anything else, since its now back to being a Nerd’s Club type of franchise instead of Something For Everybody, like Force Awakens and the Marvel U.

if people were trying to defend Solo as a great movie at on par with OT (or even better), then you bet your ass that I'd be flaming all those idiots about how wrong they are.

Solo is fine and enjoyable. It didn't deserve it's low gross.

It's entertaining to read and debating the pros and cons of scripts can be fun. The more quirky thing is going to ad hominem skitz-town because other posters have a different opinion to yours. But I reckon Chippy's self-aware about that stuff; seems more like a passionate nerd sport than anything else. I may have been trolling a little. #worldofkj

Rightio, Carl Jung. :shades:

TLJ could've made over 750mil, but a minor-ish quality decrease galvinised the exact fan hysteria that JJ's film had tried so hard to avoid. Kathleen Kennedy must've had a false sense of security after TFA's success, with the gumption to greenlight a slew of new creative risks.

The slightest degradation was always going to be sacrilege to the fanbase - but there's nothing perverse about that. Wasn't caused by childhood traumas or secret fetishes or conspiracies. Script aside, just the tone of TLJ feels incongruous with TFA. Seemed like a bunch of pointless shit to a non-fanboy like me, so I turned it off. The degree real fans cared is a good thing: represents the extent to which they identified themselves through the OT growing up. Dropping the ball even slightly on a franchise you grew up with is asking for abuse, plain and simple.

Do you think people got worked up over Captain Marvel and Ghostbusters because they have an issue with women?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJTz-ahXyyI

Start at 3:39. She slices his leg, she gets his arm, kicks him to the ground, cuts his lightsaber and slices him across the face. SHE WON...it isn't even an argument. At this point, you really just need to STFU.

She was able to read HIS mind...on the first try...sorry, at this point you are doubling down on stupid.

2) Have you not seen the movie?...seriously, you responses are akin to someone who watched the movie once and is going off of memory. Han's mouth was literally agape at her flying skills

3) Being right in the situation and not "everything is terrible, I give up" is clearly wiser.

I wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt, but your answers are just incredibly ignorant on multiple fronts.

Instead of telling her plan to the best pilot in the fleet and a man who is risking his life to stop you because he thinks you are sending everyone to death is one of the stupidest plot points in movie history...period

And that MOMENT of weakness was COMPLETELY out of character. It was literally made up as a plot device. There is ZERO indication in any Star Wars movie before this that Luke would act this way....EVER. You are literally proving my point.

"EVERYONE should have a slightly different personality."

Slightly? It is a POLAR OPPOSITE of Luke from the original trilogy. He acts NOTHING like Luke from Eps 4-6. That is what infuriated people.

Don't bother to argue with Chippy, moviebuf.
Next argument will be calling you stupid, racist, homophobe, misogynist, shut the fuck up, go away, etc.

But somehow it's not his fault per se. I think it's due to a lack of oxygen at birth.

The OT is horrible by todays standards. The story is still thematically powerful but the forced friendships/relationships and horrible acting is on full display...

Coming from the guy who think Kylo Ren had a draw with Rey at the end of TFA...don't make me laugh.

I literally listed the sequence of events that leaves him on the ground with multiple wounds including a slice across the face and no weapon...and you think....draw

If you want to double down on stupid, that is up to you. But it is completely obvious.

Only in some alternate reality would anyone even think Kylo was NOT defeated and were it not for a convenient crack in the planet she might have ended him right then and there but of course JJ couldn't let that happen.

"did rey beat kylo" in google gives you these search results. Pretty clear.

how did rey beat kylo ren

why did rey beat kylo ren so easily
